jerry saltz will analyze the bush brush. >>> we begin tonight with two men on opposite sides of gun safety reform. both claiming they represent the will of the people. new york city mayor michael bloomberg expressed confidence on "meet the press" that meaningful reform is on the horizon. >> i am cautiously optimistic. i think, when you have an issue where 90% of the public, 80% of nra members, even, say that they think we should have reasonable checks before people are allowed to buy guns, they all support the second amendment, as i do. but there are an awful lot of people that think that this is one of the great issues of our times. we have to stop -- >> yet nra executive vice president, wayne lapierre, is convinced that his organization is looking out for america's best interests, while bravely fighting off a challenge from the nanny state and its nanny mayor. >> he's going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people. and he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in their restau
. another terrible day in baghdad. the anniversary of george bush's announcement that america was at war with iraq. 55 people killed. more than 200 wounded. very hard to see that there is anything but chronic instability and continued hideous bloodshed there. what is your take? >> it's such a tragedy really the way things have unfolded in iraq. just looking at iraqi faces, seeing how pale they had become. we are hearing after one attack after another. people's voices actually began trembling. this is violence that, first of all, the iraqis never even imagined would end up being the outcome of america's war in iraq. so many of them hoped and dreamed they would have true freedom, democracy, that their horizons would be open. they have dealt with everything, all of the violence that wrecked this country over the past ten years. to be reminded of it again on the tenth anniversary shocked people and completely and totally devastated them, piers. >> it comes of course as the crisis in syria reaches what could be a tipping point where there are reports that president assad, although still uncon
're talking obama versus bush. >> i'm talking about the real government, wall street, the banks, the corporations that made $2 trillion is what we spent on the iraq war. who made that money? soldiers in the field? no, i don't think so. this is always about the people who have the purse strings and the politicians who are bought off by them, and so if they come on now and tell me anything about this, you know, ahmadinejad is building a bomb, really? well, i'll believe it, you know, when he walks in a room with it and shows it to me. frankly that's really how much i would not trust anything being said by the military industrial complex of this great country. >> when you see what happens in just today in baghdad, 55 people killed if i think 17 different bombings, two other assassinations took place, 200-plus people wounded. that's a typical day in baghdad. >> that's right. >> over the last few years. >> that's right. >> i mean, this is not peace. >> right. >> this is not democracy. >> this is not freedom. >> right. >> what is it? >> what it is is -- first of all, we set this thing
down the field. i'm not going make it. i'm a detroit lion. >> especially since we have reggie bush now. we're going to be in good shape. >> yes, that's what we always say. it is always going to be better. but i think seriously though, that the reason that in the past, with columbine, aurora, virginia tech, people forget about it after a few weeks and we move on to whatever else. people are not moving on. they are not moving on after newtown. and i think the reason is, and i can tell by the mail i get, there are too many parent who everyday drive their kids to school, and they open the door and this is what -- i mean, i've got this, more than a dozen times from mothers writing me and saying, i now when they open the door and i see them walk down the sidewalk into the school, i am sick that i have to feel like, is that last time i'm going to see my child. >> yeah. >> and because of that, because sense school went back into session after newtown, since january, millions of moms and dads have been dropping their kids off at school everyday and in the backs of their mind, they know where th
. really, back to the fight in new york where so many different people, barbara bush, the daughter of the former president, sports figures, all felt the need to come out and be in support of marriage and ultimately to stand on the right side of history. as those people come out, they lend to this atmosphere of inevitability. that i think has built up and built up and really nobody i think has played more of a role in that than the folks that ted ande and others have represented. >> i had a ski instructor once who said first there's the terror, then the horror, then the accident. i think a lot of people feared this. there was a lot of unclear, unknown fear. once people see it in all these states, they go, i don't feel pain because of this, this isn't bothering me, right? >> not only do they not feel any pain, but the other thing we have on our side is the passage of time. as time goes by, they see that these arguments that the opposition have made have fallen by the wayside. we were talking earlier that you can't find a consistent argument over this. >> that's what i want to get to.
wolf and former adviser to the bush administration and author of "start up nation," dan senor. in washington former representative of california and ceo of the woodrow international senator for scholars, jane harman. good to have you both and all of us together this morning. >>> right to the news. we had the two-year-old conflict in syria is entering a critical stage. both the rsyrian state news agency reports 25 people were killed yesterday. american officials say they are looking into the allegations and white house press secretary jay carney issued a warning to the assad regime. >> we have no evidence to substantiate the charge that the opposition has used chemical weapons. we are deeply skeptical of a regime has lost all credibility and warn the regime against making these kind of charges as any kind of pretext or cover for its use of chemical weapons. >> neither side of the conflict has provided documentation that chemical agents have been used. senator lindsey graham spoke about the allegations telling foreign policy that quote this. we need to come up with a plan to sec
, it is the anniversary of the iraq war and tell me what president bush's legacy as it pertains to the iraq war. >> well, i was a journalist in 2003 when the iraq war began. i editorialized. i looked at three different occasions we need to be careful about how we go to war. we need to be skeptical of the claims that the administration was making at that time. now i was sitting in a cheap seat. i totally confess that, but there were a lot of people at the time who understood that there was not a lot of credibility. the administrations claims. we know now that the administrations deliberately message whatever evidence we had deliberately lied about many things. i think ultimately his legacy with regard to iraq was that he was largely responsible for taking 4500 lives and changing the lives of 30,000 other americans who were severely wounded in that conflict. i think ultimately history will judge him rather harshly. >> michael: yes, i think it's a sad and rather pathetic legacy when that is your legacy. i wish we had a congress full of john yarmuth. thank you for being here in "the war room." it's great to
back to july 2007 as president bush reopened the refurbished white house briefing room and had this to say about the white house press corps. [video clip] why don't you all yell simultaneously? [laughter] really loudly. that way, you might get noticed. i will listen, internalize, play like i will answer the question, and then smile as you and say thanks. sound for such a solid, question. i will cut the ribbon. and then you yell. i cogitate. then i smile and wave. [laughter] bill plante. guest: he had a painful moment. he was getting at something that -- he had a playful moment, but he was getting as something that was true. they all try to get the attention of the president. he can choose to call on someone or choose not to answer. it is in his hands. that used to be the norm for news conferences. somewhere around the reagan era , it got some dates. people waited to be called on. -- it got very sedate. list already has a prepared of the reporters on whom he is going to call. it is hard to get recognized. president reagan once recognized a venerable reporter from texas, a woman
for republicans. george w. bush won re-election in part by endorsing state bans on same sex marriage. now? >> my son came to jane my wife and i, told us that he was gay, and that it was not a choice. >> reporter: a slow move in favor of more gay rights. republicans like senator rob portman are reversing opposition to gay marriage in part because of people close to them being more open about being gay. what was your reaction when he told you? >> love. support. you know, 110%. >> reporter: gop leaders against gay marriage appear to get that their opposition has become a minority view in america and they're increasingly careful to strike a more tolerant tone. >> i respect everyone's opinion. i just gave my opinion. my opinion is born out of my childhood, my faith, my beliefs, that marriage is between one man and one woman. i respect other people's views. >> now, anecdotally in conversations with republicans in the hallways of the capitol it seems as though republicans especially those on the younger side believe that this should be not a federal issue anymore but a state issue. we'll see if the sup
that an insurgency would rise. president bush had the courage to change that strategy in the face of a failure that we were facing. in less than two years, that success was turnaround turned around in the sense that it was 90% reduction in violence, which was very significant for achievement. at the end of the day, the major frustration we are dealing with it in 2009, the obama administration came in and changed the policy. they disengaged this and kept it at distance, and we found ourselves at the end of 2011. unlike what we have done in germany and japan and india where we kept things in place to help strengthen and secure government, and that did not take place. jon: president obama has often mentioned in speeches that was under his administration that the war in iraq ended. >> i think that he was saying it was the correct decision. what happened after the overthrow, obviously it didn't turn out the way that we expected. i think in part, it is due to a poor military strategy. but it was also an incorrect political strategy on our part. i think that we should have tried to put authority into
people needed to keep more money. why did george bush have a massive experiment in getting rich people back their money only to see the economy falling apart. you're not winning on those issues, either, john. >> joan, you're so right. you are better on this than i am normally. equal pay for equal women. your party has been slow on that. >> i agree. i'm following our party. those are the changes that we should be making. here's what the real difference between the two parties in my opinion are. >> okay. >> the republican party has always said we're going to make sure you have opportunity that leads to unlimited success but not guaranteed success. that was the american dream. we've given that up because people say it's not attainable anymore and the democrats are selling we will give you guaranteed success but it's going to be very limited. >> who says that? >> no one guarantees success. >> find -- >> it's the governmental -- >> john, i don't know any >> there's no one who wants to guarantee success. >> i've never heard that anywhere. >> no, it's all about equal opportunity. we are about
to taking the same position as george w. bush. funny thi. lou: the progress toward a more constrained iran has ended in this issue in turninghe other direction. ayollah saying today that they will annihilate the jewish cities. if it comes under attack. >> a country security it can be measured in miles and minutes. while they have a wonderful defense and missile defense system, they have quite a few major missiles. not the ones from southern lebanon, but big warheads, conventional warheads. and only i you need to get through to land to cause tremendous casualties. when people p privately or publicly come and say why aren't they acting. the leader of the country of israel has stepped talk about the repercussions, and that includes large civilian casualties. one should only strike as a measure of last resort and not because other extnal-internal forces are asking him to. lou: and the more bellicose iran becomes, the algorithm for a pre-emptive strike, the nuclear plants ourself evidence. the algorithms are pre-emptive strikes as they become more bellicose and threatening. what is him if you w
colbert bush and republicans, $500,000, spending face time with top republicans, mitt romney setting up a summit for his son tag's investment fund. paul rain and chris christie may also attend. >>> and for the supreme court, a block of young people standing against same-sex marriage. one of those opponents will join me up next. >>> check your numbers. powerball winning ticket. drawn last night. are you holding a $338 million jackpot ticket? we'll tell you. you're watching msnbc. the place for politics.

. >> michael: but so far eric holder has shown little leniency. over the entire 8 years of the bush administration there were 200 raids on dispen series. the obama administration has raided two as much in half the time. colorado and washington residents voted to fully legalize marijuana in their state. eric holder has yet to decide how he'll deal with state laws which contradict federal bans on marijuana. joining me now is jon walker, a senior policy analyst with "fire dog lake," a progressive news site. john has been covering the ongoing fight when the feds and the state when it comes to marijuana policy. jon, according to the latest quinnipiac polls, legalizing pot is showing similar numbers to support of gay marriage. is pot the new gay marriage? >> yeah, well the polling for pot and gay marriage is remarkably similar, and it has been that way for years. both have seen a 20% increase in support in the past decade, and both are subject to the same demographic divide. as the old people die out and get replaced there has been a sea change in how people support
the eight years under president bush, but they act white that all this debt -- they act like all this that happen when president obama was elected. it just amazes me that they want to get rid of medicare, social security, and give tax cuts to the rich. we found outwar war wes cost $6 trillion, were lied into. i do not understand why republicans did not admit they are the ones that ran up the debt under president bush. that is why we are in the shape we're in now. host: of the amendments put it n so far, the senate passed amendment that would eliminate the 2.3% medical device tax. they also defeated an amendment that was the ryan budget proposal from the house. a couple of tweets. daniel says -- host: a couple more calls here. joseph on the republican line. i am 69 years old, and i have seen republican, democrats in power, and i get upset with these republicans because the democrats worked bush and a lot of time they went along with him just because he was president. the republicans need to work with president obama, and they see that when bush was in charge, it did not work, and
of the bush to ministration, destroy the north korean nuclear reactor. i think that what we're seeing here is the continuing division over the proximity to a what position capability. add the netanyahu made it pretty clear in the press conference today that the uranium enrichment side, which is of long pole in anybody stand in a nuclear-weapons program is the point that he is most worried about. lou: point-blank, do you really believe that israel will attack without the support and promised support, active support of the united states military? >> they would prefer. lou: and trying to understand what you're saying here. another would prefer it. i would even go so far as to say it is an existential preference, they cannot make that decision unilaterally without the military support of the united states guaranteed. >> i don't know what the decision is going to be. lou: nor do why, but i'm asking for your view. >> the prospect of a nuclear ron, i think it will preempt. they have done it twice before. >> what makes me so mad, we have seen is happening for two years. we knew there would get to

% of the records are in the system, and the nixon act passed in 2007 signedded by bush in january of 2008 gave states inacceptabilityives to -- incentives to put records in. there's more since that time, but states have more to do. i know when virginia tech happened, my home state of indiana had zero records, and now we're up to -- we got more in the system now, but there's a long way to go. at virginia state, there were just four records in new york state. there's a lot of work to be done and needs to be a top priority, unless you do background checks on every sale, it doesn't make a difference. lou: yet, the priority, eric, has been on assault weapons ban that institutes such a small fraction of the overall problem here. your thoughts on that of the gun owners association? >> well, you're right. it would cover just minorities of the murders. as you noted before, lou, the more people die at the hands of clubs, hammers, and things like that than these so-called assault weapons, which, really, what they are after is banning common self-defense firearms. we're thankful this last saturday there w

someone like that out front too soon, but the base may rally. they're not going to go for jeb bush, that's for sure. >> poor jeb. martin, i think you hit on something that's really true. a lot of time there's an intangible, a charisma. whatever the report said, what the republican party is missing is a person, a personality who can unify the christian conservative base, the libertarian base, the people who just want to stop spending and of course the corporate wing of the party who can bring them together with a message that would appeal outside the party, who doesn't seem scary or personal story or presentation is so compelling that it draws people in. >> that's why people are thinking he's a possibility. >> it doesn't hurt he's a minority. it's not a bad idea at all to find what barack obama did within the democratic party, unified the dlc win with the liberate wing. it's not insane. >> we still need to hear a bit more about some of his ideas. >> yes. >> before advising the republican party to embrace him. >> okay. david, but maybe the reason so many conservatives have become no enamor
that will succeed. >> david from joins me now, formform er speech write for president bush. david, joe biden long supported an assault weapons ban. but when the gun task force when he started talking about what their ideas were, he didn't even mention his remarks or anything about assault weapons ban. so he also down played it. is he triying to play both side of the coin? >> it is hard to understand what the president is playing. it's been evident for a long time in the democratic majority senate, the votes aren't there for an assault weapons ban. and second, an even more relevant, i think few experts in the issue think that an assault weapons ban is anything like a top priority item in the field of gun safety. i mean a spectacular and hor ib as the crimes committed with assault weapons are, the day in and day out toll on americans comes from handguns, not assault weapons. and we're concerned about background checks and people domestic violence convictions or court orders. so why not do the thing that is easier to pass and has more political support and the answer may have to do with internal dem
the bush reforms in 2005 and 2006. i think we can find a way of making sure that people here with an undocumented status have an ability to adjust that status. we're not going to be able to deport 12 million people. and there's a way to do this without rewarding them for breaking the line or breaking the law, without rewarding them for cutting in line so they don't have a special and unique pathway so those who came here legally who paid the fines, who waited patiently are not penalized by letting people cut in front of them. i think there's a way to do this. and i would call it earned legalization status. >> let's bring in chief political analyst gloria borger. gloria, could it be that congress might actually get a little something done here? how close are lawmakers to coming up with an immigration reform plan that everyone likes or can agree to? >> i sense your skepticism because it's hard to accept congress is going to accept something. i do think, not to be polly anna here, i think you see movement on that front. there's a gang working on this in the senate. chuck schumer
the bush years when democrats blocked a landful of very conservative judicial nominees. in some respects, this might be payback. what could obama do? he can try another couple of judicial nominations. the bottom line is he needs to clear these judicial nominations with at least a handful of republicans. otherwise if they're too liberal, they will get filibustered. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >>> up next, a huge week ahead for gay rights as the supremes take up two gay marriage cases. people have been camping out in the rain and sleet just to get inside. but pete williams always has the inside scoop. he will get us up to speed as "the cycle" rolls on. try e-mail marketing from constantcontact. it's the fastest, easiest way to create great-looking custom e-mails that bring customers through your door. sign up for your free trial today at constantcontact.com/try. otherworldly things. but there are some things i've never seen before. this ge jet engine can understand 5,000 data samples per second. which is good for business. because planes use less fuel, spend less time on the grou
seat. over on the democratic side, elizabeth colbert-bush easily won the democratic primary. >>> now sanford's showing leads us to the question, what separates the political wrecks from the rebounders? >> indeed i did have a relationship with ms. lewinski that wasn't appropriate. >> i have not been honest with myself, my family, my constituents, my friends, and supporters and the media. >> here to talk about political comebacks, democratic strategist and former edwards campaign communications director chris kafinas. good morning to you both. >> thanks for having me. >> so, kristen, sanford was having an extramarital affair with an argentinian woman. hiking in the appalachian trail became synonymous with cheating for a while. did you think you'd ever see this? what we saw last night? >> i didn't think so. but as soon as he entered the race, hooest got the sort of name i.d. that would make him a strong contender. let's not forget besides, if you set aside this very public personal failing, he was very popular as governor. he was actually talked about as a potential contender for the re
